# Bitumen Density Calculator

Bitumen is also called as Asphalt or Asphalt Cements. It is a sticky, black and highly viscous semi liquid/semi solid form of petroleum. It is extracted from the natural deposits. It is mainly composed of highly condensed Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. The density of Bitumen/Asphalt is approximately equal to 1 tonne per cubic metre at 20 degree Celsius, which is exactly the same as water. Use our online Bitumen Density calculator to find the asphalt density.

#### Formula:

Density of Bitumen / Asphalt = (W_{2} - W_{1}) / (W_{3} - W_{1}) - (W_{4} -W_{2})
**Where,**
W_{2} = Weight of Pycnometer with Bitumen
W_{1} = Weight of Empty and Dry Pycnometer
W_{4} = Weight of Pycnometer with Distilled Water and Bitumen
W_{3} = Weight of Pycnometer with Full of Water at Temperature 25°C
### Example:

Find bitumen density.

Given :

Weight of Pycnometer with Bitumen = 23 g

Weight of Empty and Dry Pycnometer = 14 g

Weight of Pycnometer with Distilled Water and Bitumen= 50 g

Weight of Pycnometer with Full of Water at Temperature 25°C = 60 g

#### Solution:

Asphalt Density = (23 - 14) /[ (60 - 14)-(50-23)]

= 0.4737
